gosh, I can barely make a decent castle. great picture!

Sukhmandir Kaur said...

That's quite a sand sculpture. I pushed around a little sand myself last weekend with a similar idea in mind, but certainly nothing to that extent. Happy WW

i took a sand scuplture workshop before, it was fun, yet also hardwork, i know i can never make one like this on my own :)

FrugalMom said...

That is pretty cool! I tried to make a sandcastle at the beach on Sunday....needless to say I won't even put up a photo:)


I would like to invite you to The Wednesday Window . It is the place to feature your favorite blog post of the past week or so, for more details check out Frugality Is Free.

That's so cool! Great capture! Happy WW!

Snowcatcher said...

Extraordinary! That takes SO much more work than a plain, upside-down bucket castle!

catsynth said...

Wow, that is very impressive.
(So much work to simply be washed back into the sea.)

You have made the sand monument a permanent one now.

lina said...

I like to look at these beautiful sandcastles. The people who build these are so creative.

Dazediva said...

Impressive sculpting ! I've worked with a lot of sand sculptors for events and it never ceases to amaze me just how detailed & intricate their work is .. !

Happy WW to you :)

Deb: It was part of an annual sandcastle building contest and everyone had 4 hours to build their masterpieces.

And Miles To Go: I agree. Every team had a San Francisco theme although I don't remember a dragon here. :)

AussiePomm: From the hands of sand sculpting artists. It's amazing to see them work. From sand into art.

Au and Target: It takes lots of skills and imagination.

Caite: Thanks. Keep trying, practice makes perfect?

Sukhmandir Kaur: Did you take a photo of your sculpture? We want to see what you built.

betchai: I didn't know there are sculpture workshops. This particular sculpture was a team effort.

FrugalMom: Maybe this one will inspire you to make your next sand sculpture.

scrapchick: Thanks! Happy WW!

Snowcatcher: It did take lots of buckets of sand to make that mound which eventually became the head of the dragon.

catsynth: It was a lot of work by the teams. It would be interesting to see how long it stayed up without it being disturbed.

rainfield61: It is permanent until the wind and rain comes.

lina: I took photos of more, so stay tuned for my next post.

steve from bethere2day: Thanks for dropping by.

Poetic Shutterbug: This was happening in San Francisco, probably very close to your neighborhood last weekend.

EastCoastLife: There were 20+ teams and each sculpture had to have a San Francisco theme. This particular team was very creative to come up with this design.

Dazediva: I guess the possibilities are endless when working with sand and water.
